address. president barack obama hits the floor for some reason with republican congressman eric cantor in tow in no way making this seem like a charismatic star performer walking the red carpet with his agent. baby doll we gotta move. mario lopez has a satellite window we have to him. [laughter] [cheers and applause] i'm sore i'm -- sorry. just sweat age bit. i'm just going to, just going to -- get something to drink here. [laughter] just so thirsty i can't -- sorry. should have drank something before the show. i don't know why i didn't think after this. anyway it's the state of union so as the late great ed koch would say, how we doing? >> a family with children making the minimum wage stills lives below the poverty. there's communities where no matter how hard you work it's virtually impossible to get ahead. >> jon: i mean who is running this (bleep), right, people? come on. he should get on this stuff -- oh, wait a minute. [ laughter ] for how long? but unfortunately the president continued paintedding his pick turf an america that sounded more like an applebee's laden distoapic hea
: president obama wrapped up his post-state of the union tour with a visit to his hometown today. margaret warner has the story. >> warner: the president's trip to chicago came amid the country's new focus on gun violence. and while he was there to talk about raising the minimum wage and expanding preschool for children, the city's surge of gun killings wasn't far from his mind. >> last year, there were 443 murders with a firearm on the streets of this city, and 65 of those victims were 18 and under. so that's the equivalent of a newtown every four months. and that's precisely why the overwhelming majority of americans are asking for some common-sense proposals to make it harder for criminals to get their hands on a gun. >> warner: those 443 shooting deaths were among more than 500 homicides in chicago last year. and last month, 15-year-old hadiya pendleton, who had just performed during president obama's inauguration festivities in washington, was shot dead about a mile from the first family's chicago home. first lady michelle obama attended her funeral last weekend, and the president hig
by violence and gun violence. so i think that moving forward you will continue to hear president obama make these types of broad-based arguments in terms of the policy and getting stiffer gun legislation passed. you also heard president obama saying some of the measures he is calling for deserve a vote. realistically does he expect a reinstatement of the ban on assault weapons? probably not. he will continue to call for a vote but i think today is an indication that he's going to continue to press for other things like improving mental health services, early childhood education, and alongside that continue to fight for the legislation in terms of what is realistic, probably most likely getting universal background checks. that seems to have the broadest base of support at this time, martin, but we're really getting a window into the tactic this president will take moving forward as he does try to combat gun violence. again, getting personal today. it reminded me of his state of the union address when he had that rousing finish at the end which was also quite emotional when he spoke to the v
. well, republicans just can't quit their cartoon version of president obama as a tyrannical, liberty-hating socialist. how is that working for you guys? >>> and no surprise, the late night comics drank deeply from marco rubio's water bottle. >> don't worry, senator rubio, nobody noticed that you gave a speech. >>> and finally, let me finish with how the attacks on president obama's choice for secretary of defense are really attacks on the people's choice, the american people's choice for president. and that's what this is about. and this is "hardball," the place for politics. [ male announcer ] i've seen incredible things. otherworldly things. but there are some things i've never seen before. this ge jet engine can understand 5,000 data samples per second. which is good for business. because planes use less fuel, spend less time on the ground and more time in the air. suddenly, faraway places don't seem so...far away. ♪ >>> well, my good friend new jersey senator frank lautenberg says he's going to retire next year and not seek a sixth term. and that opens the door for cory booker
obama's pick for secretary of defense? or is it the man the american people have chosen? is it about a confirmation or a desperate push to undermine the president's second term? listen to those attacking senator hagel, and you hear the yelps of pain this motley crew of neocons and right-wingers from the sun belt feel even though from the american people's choice of last november. what they hate, despise really, is the fact now in the history books that the american people in great numbers reject their war-like jingoistic notions of what america stands for. their problem is not with obama's choice for a cabinet appointment. their problem is with america's choice of who it wants to be president, who it wants deciding what we should be doing in this world. obama works for peace. he works hard for it. this crowd has other ideas. and that's "hardball" for now. happy valentine's, everybody. what a day. and thanks for being with us tonight. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. i get some backup tonight. jame
happened. sick stuff. and it seems to be growing in inverse proportion to obama's popularity. the better he looks the worse these characters inhofe, cruz, mccain and lindsey graham are determined to look. did you notice the smile on john boehner's face sitting up there behind the president during the state of the union? if you did, you're imagining things. so afraid of the hard hating right of republicans these days of every stripe even boehner's scared to death of looking like he might like something barack obama had so say. to do that is to risk political death in these days. let's go at it. our guests are joy reid of the grio and michael steele, former chafer of the republican national committee. both are msnbc analysts and good ones. let's take a look at this. is this delay on the hagel vote about playing for time hoping new information comes out about them? "the new york times" reports today that anti-hagel groups are right now hoping for exactly that. quote, leaders of these groups said in interviews this they expected their efforts to include more phone calls urging conservative vote
what we should be doing in this world. obama works for peace. he works hard for it. this crowd has other ideas. and that's "hardball" for now. happy valentine's, everybody. what a day. and thanks for being with us tonight. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. i get some backup tonight. james carville is here to explain why it's still the economy, stupid. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> we've got to make sure hard work's rewarded with a wage that you can live on and raise a family on. >> the president demands fairness. but even his call for a $9 minimum wage is way off. tonight, the great james carville on how american workers are getting stiffed and what the democrats can do about it. breaking news. wealthy tax fat cats who have got offshore bank accounts, especially in switzerland, beware. i'll tell you why today's announcement from the white house is a major blow for tax evaders. plus, the historic filibuster of the president's pick for defense secretary reaches a boiling point. >> we
class talk. this speech was about one thing only. >> president obama believes the government is the solution, more government. >> big government. >> big government. >> big government. >> this is the most progovernment speech since lyndon johnson. >> stephen: yes, i find it offensive that the head of our government would give a speech to everyone else in the government that was so pro-government. [ laughter ] not to mention, the president immediately declared war on the private sector. >> tonight, let's declare that in the wealthiest nation on earth, no one who works full time should have to live in poverty and raise the federal minimum wage to $9 an hour. >> >> stephen: $9? that is almost two feet of sandwich. where does it end? where did it end? a living wage spoils the working man. just ask c.e.o. and fox news resident smeagol robert luddy. jim? >> i worked for $85 cents an hour when i was in high school and i was happy to have that job. >> stephen: that's what i'm talking. america has gone soft. if everyone is living the fantasy life of cold and heat they'll have no drive.
, is it time for a breakup? >>> president obama's nominee for defense secretary chuck hagel has the 51 votes needed in the senate for confirmation. today he actually needed 60 to control republican procedural hurdle that would allow the vote on his nomination to actually take place. he got 58 votes. hagel came up two votes short of what he needed. today he will eventually have those votes. that's for sure. >> we can get this issue resolved on the day that we return from the recess. certainly there is, i believe, sufficient votes to invoke cloture at that time. >> when we get back, unless there's a real bombshell, i vote for cloture and move on to his nomination. >> that's right. senators john mccain and lindsey graham will vote to end debate on the confirmation of chuck hagel, eventually, but today, they just didn't feel like it. they towed the party line and voted to block hagel's nomination. the procedural vote failed 40-58 with one senator voting present and one senator not voting. 54 democrats voted in favor as did four republicans. no cabinet member nominated for a national security pos
center, jacki sheckner. >> president obama will welcome president napolitano as the italian leader prepares to leave office. then he'll give out the 2012 citizens medal to 12 people, the nation's second highest civilian honor. former senator harris waford helped form the peace corps and been an advocate in higher education and will receive the award. he will make a trip to chicago making remarks about his proposals to strengthen the middle class and bolster our economy. >> congress heading home today leaving a decent amount of work as it heads into a recess. republicans have now blocked the confirmation of former senator chuck hagel as our next secretary of defense. and brennaman as the head of the c.i.a. in a new t.v. add for the n.r.a., a gun owner is a proclaimed proud defender of the second amendment. >> after the nra's disgusting response, i've had enough. you take money from the n.r.a. and then continue to do their bidding, we're going to remember that come election time. >> move on is running a separate add targeting senator rob portman of ohio. the senator said he could get

is brewing in d.c. tonight over president obama's pick to be the next defense secretary. now, as republican senators temporarily block a vote on chuck hagel's nomination, that was earlier today. delayed the vote until late february. now republicans say it's premature to close the debate over the nominee and say that before any confirmation vote will take place, they want answers from hagel and the white house about what exactly president obama was doing the night of the benghazi terror attack that killed a u.s. ambassador and three other americans. the first time a filibuster of a cabinet nominee has been used and needless to say this marks a major win for the g.o.p., and a pretty embarrassing defeat for the president. and joining me now with reaction from the american center for law and justice, jay sekulow and analyst juan williams, i don't always agree with leon panetta and i respect him and he said about the see skwquestration cuts, it going to hollow our military and devastate the military, and he chuck hagel says the budget is bloated. and missile defense, wants to disarm america of n
